We finished this project so long ago! back in March. 2020. Aka 40 years ago.
I meant to post about it earlier, but, obviously, didn't.
Anyway -- this was a very fun project conceived by Liam from Oh Rose / Deja Blue, and contributed to by a whole slew of PNW / West coast friends. It is REALLY wonderful --!
Due to Pink Floyd apparently having heavy copyright on all their music, you can download it for free or make a donation at the bandcamp link here:
march 18 -- in olympia we've been on partial lockdown for a few days. i was sick last week so i've been self-isolating for longer... the aerial studio i teach at here is okay for the moment which feels like the biggest blessing i could possibly ask for regarding my own personal life -- i'll be okay for at least 3-6 months or so and then... we'll see i guess. so many people are worse off, and... well. there aren't words.
anyway here is a photo of me playing synth from earlier in the month -- and then photos from zoe's photo opening at schwartz's at the beginning of the month -- feels like a really fuckn long time ago.
-------- from november's brotherhood takes flight, our monthly aerial show at the brotherhood taven. photos by the amazing and generous jo arlow; we are so lucky to have her. poster by the one and only david strother. thank you for being such a wonderful audience, as always, olympia.
I have been making earrings! here are some and a link to the etsy.
I'll also be selling them IRL alongside Pamela (Mucho Design Jewelry) on September 7th at the Teeny Tiny Taproom (Whitewood Cider Company) by the food trucks on State & Plum in downtown Olympia, ~ 4-7PM.

It's November 2018 and a few exciting things to share --
Dec 3, 2018: The Brotherhood Takes Flight: I'm performing this December (Dec 3, Wednesday, 8PM) at the Brotherhood Takes Flight in Olympia, WA -- it is the ten year anniversary of the Brotherhood Takes Flight!
January 2018 teaching at Sparrow Studios: secondly, I'm going to be teaching a lot more at Sparrow Studios starting in January -- Sara Sparrow, owner and founder and instrumental circus artist here in Olympia, is moving down to California. signup for classes will happen mid-December (e-mail sparrowclasses [at] gmail for more information). Teaching this last year has been really, really incredible, and I feel really grateful to get to teach more often here in Olympia!
last but not least -- mostly I've just been concentrating on music... excited to share more songs and performances soon! <3 <3
